Math SE has got a cite button to give citations on homeworks or etc. Can we have it here too?
Do we want a cite button? What are the advantages\disadvantages?
A quote from math stack exchange to answer why do we need cite button under every post by @David E Speyer
I am a big fan of the cite button, because it reminds people that they are supposed to cite things they learned here on math.SE. Citations are the currency of academia -- if I write a good answer here, I want to be able to say five years later that this answer was cited so many times in so many papers. Indeed, I get a little annoyed when I see papers that use ideas they learned on MO or math.SE and don't cite them. I know that math.SE is more oriented towards students than research, but it is also important to teach students that they need to cite where they learned things! If you are allowing your students to use math.SE as a reference, then you should be requiring that they cite it just like any other source they use, and the cite button reminds them of this.
It seems that people are complaining because they have trained their muscle memory on other SE sites, or on this site before the button was there. The easy solution to this is to move the cite button to the far right.
I support moving the cite button to the far right, but keeping it visible on the main post.

Also as I mentioned on below comments once we have cite button it will attract attention of people from universities who are studying electronics therefore we will have academical questions regarding research on electronics.
I believe this will create a kind of a good diversity here. People will see some people asking about their current electronics research and we will both learn more.
